    Red Epic-M Monochrome Cinema Cam


    Red Camera just announced the Epic-M Monochrome, which packs an all-new black and white-only Mysterium-X sensor.  The new Red device has a dedicated CMOS sensor, which means no color debayering, yielding a one-to-one pixel count and 15-20 percent bump in effective resolution compared to its chromatic cousin. It also boasts a sensitivity gain as another advantage, asserting that the Monochrome will have a native ISO of 2,000, more than double that of the Epic-M or X.

    The camera will have a new low pass filter to account for the higher resolution, and buyers who spend $42,000 to get one on October 1st will be upgraded to a new Dragon Monochrome Sensor next year.
